    And finally, four SD45s with a unit train of...WHAT THE!!??!!... :eek:
    I guess a day of inhaling diesel fumes has gotten to me! You'd never believe what I thought I saw. :) Val, I might have worked out the perfect consist for delivering steel to your layout that is set some 15-20 years earlier than mine!

    That's all folks! Thanks for coming along :wave:

    You should redecorate that steam loco with PC logos. That would confuse a few rivet counters. :p

    I dont think the PC could keep a steamer running for more then five feet before some important part falls off. :p

    :D :D :D :D Now ya owe me one!! When I post pics - I expect to hear some good suggestions!! .. :D Like I already dont get way too many :D :D

    Pictures help you focus & concentrate on a certain area.... If you take pics & look at them later - you wll almost always see the "Room for Improvement" :)

    It's still a great job!!!!!!! :D

    Another day, another round of action (ie. I took another roll of film :) )

    Starting off for today we see a GP20 still in NYC livery appropriately enough pulling a string of NYC box cars. Some other changes of note: The Kings Port yard has been renamed "Williams Yard" (in honor of my Uncle Bill who sent me his HO trains years ago. The yard office now has an outside stair rail and a door on the second floor! :)

    How lucky are we!?! A fan trip on an old Doodlebug!!!! (I like to run this thing occasionally and tend to use it as the train for young kids who visit since they can change direction and speed without derailing a string of cars)

    Ralph Awesome Photo's. About how much did the DoodleBug Cost. I am thinking of buying another one but in B&O or C&O Paint Scheme? Been awhile since i bought my last one and i forget how much they cost.
